a down and out Scandinavian prostitute and in-debt-to-man-low-lifes
Concentration Camp survivor is selected to take part in studies conducted
by high-level, well established Professor Doctor Horstadius in 1950s
Norway. The 'good doctor' impregnates his 'subjects'
(prostitutes of various varieties, mostly) with his own (superior genetic)
sperm, then contracts the women to have their babies extracted at various
stages of pregnancy for anatomical study of human embryological
development. The Professor pays good money to his 'girls', the
candidates having been personally chosen by his wife. But when Lorena
has a change of heart, or more accurately, an awakening of Soul, she wants
out of the deal. It evokes the Professor's rage and relentless
pursuit, her getaway made possible by (a) the Professor's favorite
student, Jon Svenson, a young, status-hungry scientist who find his
priorities changing very fast, and (b) the unexpected help of the 'good
doctor's' black-hearted and embittered wife.
Comment: Psychological/action medical thriller. Appeals to women who are connected to life issues, but speaks to men as well, revealing the underbelly of very dark worlds in ways that hit the mind and heart. Mature audience. Based on a very real story about the a Scandinavian Scientist Physician whose medical observations still remain in mainstream biomedical textbooks today.
